Later-model Odysseys tend to have PIN protection on certain console devices. These are factory-set and not user-settable. Honda maintains a database which maps serial numbers to PINs, and provides a web-based lookup site. Some 3rd-party instructions state that dealers can also look up this information[1].

The method for looking up serial numbers depends on the device, and the exact devices involved depend on the model year and submodel.

  • 1BU5 audio player with segmented monochrome LCD display
  • touchscreen (includes navigation)


  • - for retrieving PINs (needs VIN plus device serial number)
    • You can retrieve up to two devices at once; after that, you will have to re-enter your information.
    • The information will be displayed on the web and emailed to you.
    • There does not appear to be any limitation on the number of requests per VIN or email address.
